I Will Be The Sun, Moon - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

making friends
is like breaking the ice
each piece comes out
with a difference
different edges
the looks
as varying as
the new faces
in school
places of work
and their tastes
a thousand books
to write them down
some like books
some like music
some like sports
some like bits and pieces of everything
for every new friend I make
i would be like the sun
is to the bloom
in the shadows
I seek them out
to give them
a chance to
show their beauty
in a thousand ways
i help them
discover the best
in themselves
a sun in the nights
of their life
so that like blooms
they glow in pride
like the sun that helps
the big hibiscus,
glow in red, white, pink
to brighten up the day
the slipper orchids,
a thousand varieties of them
to shower our love
the crocuses, the carnations,
roses, chrysanthemums,
a mountain of them
to elevate our souls
i would stand by my friend
and be his sun or moon
to help him bloom
be it day or night
to help his world
go round
